Vitamin C serum is one of the best skincare products you can use for skin health and anti-aging. Vitamin C is a potent anti-oxidant that prevents damage from the sun, pollution, and poor diet, to mention a few. The combination of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and ferulic acid (a fruit acid) elevates the product potency and helps with issues like wrinkles and fine lines, creating more collagen and plumping the skin, strengthening elastin, and providing some protection from the sun's radiation. This combination has been studied and is mentioned in dermatology journals as being the most potent for anti-aging.
This formulation contains 20% vitamin C, which is high when compared to other brands. If you are using a vitamin C serum that does not list the percentage of C that it contains, it's probably not doing much for you.
Vitamin C is used in the morning after cleansing and toning and before moisturizing. Daily use is encouraged as the results are cumulative.
While I do not make this serum, I use Hale Cosmeceuticals brand as I have found them to be the most effective amnufacturer of Vitamin C serums. I had the pleasure of speaking with the owner of the company at a conference in 2019 and we share many of the same principles of clean, cruelty free products. His development of products is both scientific and conscious.
This is the Vitamin C product I use on my own skin and I am happy to offer it to you here on my website.
